Good food quality but service a bit patronizing. Good wines and menu. Location is not the best in Geneve.

Once of the in Geneva area, I have been visiting them in about monthly based last 15 years. Perfect typical French food. You should not forget the extensive wine list from France, Italy and Spain

We go for the beef but enjoy all the rest. Delicious food, wonderful warm welcome from the owners and the atmosphere is fun and lively. We do not go out to dinner often as we are very busy but when we want to unwind, Le Boeuf rouge is where we go.

Excellent out of the ordinary food. We had a potted pork starter served with their home made bread and pickles. It was amazing. We ordered a fish entry and a steak and shared. The server recommended a good red wine that was not overly expensive. It was a wonderful last meal before we leave Europe tomorrow.

Great restaurant. Make a great steak and great home cooking. It reminded me a lot of home-cooking (that is a compliment). On the other hand not extremely special. I had expected more based on the previous reviews. This restaurant is very busy probably to the many positive reviews that it receives. Waiters speak English, French, Spanish, Italian and German, and... More

We had an absolutely delightful meal with excellent service and helpful wait staff with great suggestions and timing. After several seemingly over-priced and disappointing meals in Geneva, the Bistrot du Boeuf Rouge was well-prepared and very generous in portion size and quality of food for a still somewhat pricey but worth it experience. Great ambiance and atmosphere inside as well... More

Good lyonnaise restaurant in Geneve. The food was very good, so was the wine and the service. The prices are also pretty decent for Geneve.
